Channel the coastline
You don’t need to live near the beach to craft this lovely seashell wreath. Take a Styrofoam wreath and turn your home into a seaside escape using an assortment of shells with starfish accents. If you have any shells left over, then you can also make a matching picture frame!

Get back to basics
Make a wreath you can enjoy all year by using burlap. Attach sprigs of holly, colorful flowers, patterned ribbon, or fall leaves to suit the occasion. Decorate a wood letter to add a custom touch to your wreath and give as a gift to your friends and family.

Turn over a new leaf
This unique birch bark wreath has a neutral composition that looks fantastic just about anywhere. Cut sheets of birch into leaves, hearts, or a variety of shapes to make a rustic, textured wreath for your front door. Make a smaller wreath and use as a centerpiece by placing an arrangement of candles in the center, or by using a birch bark vase filled with creamy white flowers.

Go all natural
Turn a grapevine wreath into a woodland work of art. Add natural fern accents, leaves, feathers, or wrap with ivy to craft an ornament that looks as though it simply grew that way. Suspend these wreaths from trees at an outdoor event, or use them as subtle embellishments throughout your home.
